This is my compressor cabinet. It is 24”x24” by 36” tall. The 2 drawers are on full extension slides and hold my nail guns and other supplies. On the right side is the pressure regulator and 2 air outlets. These are recessed so they do not bump into anything as i move it around. The little cubby at the bottome keeps the airlines from dragging around and I can put my gun in there when i need to set it down. The back has 2 live outlets and the switch to the 2 outlets inside the cabinet where I have the compressor and a computer fan plugged in. The fan runs all of the time to vent the heat. I do have a “chase” the air goes through to help dampen the noise. The compressor is 100 dBs but inside the cabinet it is about 78-80 dBs. The inside of the cabinet is lined with 3/4 insulation to help dampen the sound.The compressor is on a tray with full exetnsion slides for easy access/removal as needed and has a quick connect tot he air lines. I used two rare earth magnets opposite eachother to keep the door closed. Since the compressor cycles on and off and the fan runs all of the time, heat has not been an issue. I like having the 2×2 foot work surface on top. My bench is also at 36” making it easier to have a piece span between the two if needed.
